Against growing vaccine scepticism, LYMEC believes that the EU and its Member States must do more to encourage vaccine uptake among all populations. The EU and Member States must do more to combat the spread of false information regarding vaccinations and work harder to communicate the benefits of vaccinations to citizens.

Voting Age

LYMEC supports Votes at 16. The EU should adopt draft legislative acts and legalise voting in European Parliament elections from 16 years old in all EU Member States. Alongside this, LYMEC believes the EU should promote social and cultural exchange programmes to empower youth, educate them on the day-to-day functioning of the EU and strengthen a common EU identity.
